Day of Giving

 

  • We did it!

    With the strong support of the Pioneer community, we surpassed our goal of 2,000 gifts in 24 hours.


    LC alumni, parents, faculty, staff, students, and friends all pulled together and made a combined 2,099 gifts totaling $279,103 and unlocked the $115,000 match. We are also thrilled to announce that the Shannon O’Leary Fund is now endowed.

    Successful On-Campus Challenges

    • Executive Council matched $7,550 in gifts from CAS, GSEC, and Law staff.
    • Interim President David Ellis and Jeanne Ellis pledged $1,000 to the Shannon O’Leary Fund when 200 faculty and/or staff from the CAS give. Success!

    • Scott Fletcher, Dean of the Graduate School, pledged to match gifts from graduate faculty up to $1,000, and from graduate staff up to an additional $1,000. Success!
